The ideas are flowing again. For three years I have felt like I was going through a "creativity desert". It has been hard for me because creating things feeds my soul and I could not create a thing. Recently I have felt the ides flowing again. This is my new favorite creation. It came out of a Birthday present creation of a hoop earring I made for my friend Sandra. We share the month of February for our Birthday month and I felt inspired to make her a stylistic hoop for her special day.
I have since made myself a pair and worn them for a week straight.

Well after clipping the weekly grocery coupons, starting to clean the kitchen, starting a load of laundry, breaking up a breakfast table fight, cleaning up the straws that ended up everywhere and finally listening to DeLuca tell Tristan that she needs to marry him I can only sit and chuckle at this circus that is my life. I wouldn't trade it but I do wish I could just finish one thing uninterrupted! I am sure the other Mom's out there share the same sentiment. Happy Sunday everyone!

Visual Vocabulary: A picture says a lot and pictures tell beautiful stories on this Blog. It is eye candy just scrolling fast down the pages of entries. I am a busy Mom of a health and eating challenged 2 y/o boy and a vivacious, spicy, rule the world type 4 y/old girl. Blogs have to catch my attention visually first and then keep curiosity long enough to read the blog post. I could spend hours on a Blog like this.
Jesyka posts adorable outfits for her little girl Laelia. Inspiration for little girls anywhere. Laelia is a fashionable little on that is for sure.
Here is outfit #11:Another inspiration from this blog is the transformation of this China Hutch. It is so amazing and has been featured on Design*Sponge, Craft:, apartment therapy and finally Centsatinal Girl. I love it and suddenly feel the urge to go buy a tacky old hutch and give it a glam makeover.

My blog has been silent for awhile. I thought I would share why. My 8 month old son could not keep any solids down starting at 6 months and was even struggling to keep liquids down. He would spit up 30+ times per hour and was not gaining weight. They kept thinking he was just a "spitty baby" but I finally cracked and insisted something be done. An upper GI study was done and they found a small bowel malrotation. This was causing an intermittent bowel obstruction...thus the profuse spitting up! He had surgery at Doernbecher Childrens Hospital on Dec 18th. I cannot say enough good things about Doernbecher Children's Hospital. We are blessed to have them near us. We did make it home before Christmas on Dec 22nd but needless to say we layed low for the Holidays. We were just thankful for being home with our little girl and our healing little boy. He is still struggling with solid food and still has specialist appointments galore but the spitting up has now reduced to a tolerable level. I will get back to the blog and open my store again when my life and my child's health are back in order.

Assignment #4: What’s your propositional benefit or in other words … why should I buy your necklace instead of the other guys? Give three remarkable points about your product.
So here goes my assignment #4:
What makes my product unique?
I handcraft all the jewelry in my shop myself. I do my best to pair all beads for their similar attributes however it is my desire that they all will have individual distinctions as I use many materials formed by nature. Earrings and wire clasp components may vary slightly from pair to pair as I make most of the wire components freehand. I do my best to recreate and duplicate form and design yet I take artistic freedom with each piece to allow it to take on unique free form qualities during the crafting and replication process. Please embrace each of my unique creations for its truly individual characteristics, natural materials, free form shape and craftsmanship.
